Town forward hungry for a productive pre-season following spell on the sidelines

Jack Lankester is aiming to 'hit the ground running' when Town return for pre-season ahead of the 2019-20 campaign at the end of June.

The Blues forward is currently sidelined with a stress fracture in his back, and last turned out for the Club in January.

"The recovery is going well and I have my final scan next week," he told the Club website.

"I'll be honest when I picked up the injury I didn't expect to be out this long, but in the long term it will serve me well.

"My aim now is to get my fitness back up to what it was before, and make sure I am raring to go for the start of pre-season. I want to hit the ground running.

"It will be an important summer for me, and for everyone at the Club, but I want to make sure I am all set for what I hope can be a big campaign."
